National HIV Testing Day 2015

City of Alexandria logoNational HIV Testing Day is observed on June 27 of each year. On this day individuals are encouraged to Take the Test. Take control. Early detection and treatment for HIV saves lives, and yet over half of adults in the United States have never been tested. Nearly one in seven people living with HIV in this country doesn’t know his or her status. That delays treatment, increases risk of transmission, and sets us back in our fight against the epidemic.

The Center for Disease Control recommends that all individuals ages 13 to 64 get an HIV test. For more information on HIV testing sites and availability, visit alexandriava.gov/Health.
